Alert Frankfurt spotters!
Air India's newly-acquired Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft started its long-haul international operations on Monday with a flight to Frankfurt. "Air India's Dreamliner to Frankfurt marks a new era of its operations with the state-of-the-art aircraft on the long haul routes as well," a statement from the national carrier said.
The flight (AI 121) from Delhi to the German city took off from the IGI airport in New Delhi with Captain A Soman in Command and Captain Nikhil Dongre as co-pilot, the statement said.

Just me, or is FRA the unofficial 787 "hub"? (well, discounting PAE...where several ones that need rework are sitting on the ground!) IIRC, NH's first long distance 787 route was HND-FRA, and now AI, too...and hasn't ET sent theirs there?
Celebrating the birth of KELPkidJR on August 5, 2009 :-)
